    The intuos5 touch has several issues with the touch features - forcing you to attempt several times to get something done (see my review on the intuos5). After reading some forums, I found that the Intuos4 mouse works on the intuos5 tablets - so I bought one after the fact. It works great and is particularly helpful on regular Windows applications (I hardly ever use the touch anymore).

    I have noticed that the driver for Windows 7 64 bit crashes from time to time - I can't be sure if it's the mouse or not...I need to do more testing. But simply opening the Properties panel for the Tablet resets things most of the time.

    I don't understand why they don't ship a mouse automatically with the intuos tablets...touch is too touchy.

    My second Wacom tablet. Got used to using the mouse in pen mode with my first tablet (Intuos3) but suffered regularly from the left button double clicking. Disassembly and cleaning would alleviate the problem for a time but it would always return. Considering the $30 mice I've bought have never had this kind of problem and the price of the Wacom mice, I would expect better performance. Now I've upgraded to the Intuos5 and didn't notice that it comes without the mouse. Ordered this one and out of the box, I already have occasional double click issues. A problem like this should not persist through multiple generations of the product.
    Unfortunately, I don't have other options and will have to live with this if I want to use the mouse with the tablet. I don't have the desk space for a standard mouse in addition to the tablet.

      Replacement of mouse for Intuos 4. The product is working great, the shipment was fast and I would not hesitate to purchase any products from B&H as everything I have purchased has been shipped fast and in perfect condition.

        Comments about Wacom Intuos4 Mouse:

        I recently needed to replace my Wacom mouse to go with my tablet. It was a rough go once the mouse was losing it's edge and this replacement was exactly what the dr. ordered! I literally had to just remove my other mouse and place this new one on the tablet and away I went! Super smooth and fast (the way they should be!). So far thrilled! *Note: the other mouse was the original that was 4-6 years old!

              It lasted longer than I thought it would. I use the mouse and the pen about the same amount of time. The pens works great for correction images with photoshop, illustrator, and InDesign. I use the mouse for internet and e-mail. I love the pen and mouse because they need no batteries.

                  Comments about Wacom Intuos4 Mouse:

                  I found The touch capability on the intuos5 touch to be problematic, particularly frustrating when working with the regular Windows applications. I missed my mouse very badly. The Wacom forums pointed out that the Inuos4 mouse works on the intuos5 tablets, so I grabbed one. It's definitely needed, in my opinion. Works great.

                  BTW: I'm having some problems with the driver crashing sporadically (Windows 7, 64 bit) - I'm not sure if it's getting confused with the mouse and touch or not - or just a problem with the software. The problem is usually resolved by just opening the Properties app.

                          The Intuos 4 Mouse is used with the Wacom Intuos Tablets and is needed to access the full capability of the tablet (great tablet) So you use this mouse for all of your daily mouse activity.Works great, Unfortuntely the mouse electronics are extremely sensitive to dirt and your mouse will develope double click syndrome over time. If you are handy, you can disassemble the mouse and try cleaning it, this works most of the time.Downside, these mice are relatively expensive and there seems to be a chronic supply shortage. So if you need one, I suggest you keep a spare on hand.

                            I have used one or another Wacom tablet for many years now. I've had my most recent, an Intous4, for some years. While I use a pen for all my photo work, I use the mouse for everything else. My mouse suddenly started double-clicking when I only clicked once. Wacom tech assistance said this means the mouse is broken. This purchase is a replacement.

                            Although for most of the design work I'm using a pen, I'm always grabbing the mouse for the more mundane stuff. The switches were starting to go (getting double-clicks all the time) so needed a replacement. Good price, and quick shipping.
